Calves Week 2020 Cancelled
June 27, 2020 9:38 am
The 2020 Calves Week Regatta has been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
The Committee of Schull Harbour Sailing Club has come to the conclusion that it could not guarantee the safety of large numbers of competitors in the small town of Schull in these uncertain circumstances. The considerable difficulty in implementing social distancing on and off the water and the risk of spreading the virus has led to the cancellation of the regatta. We are mindful of the government guidelines with regard to social distancing and the convening of large gatherings. Whilst it is a big disappointment for all involved, we feel it is in the best interests of all, competitors, club organisers and the local community in Schull.
Schull Harbour Sailing Club wish to thank the sponsors of the event, particularly our main sponsor CD Environmental, the Race Officer Alan Crosbie, those who have already entered and all the loyal supporters of Calves Week for their patience and understanding.
Hopefully Calves Week 2021 will be back stronger than ever
